It's the details that make holidays so special, and I'm all about the details.  I love taking the time to set a special table for Thanksgiving.  I host Thanksgiving each year, so I have been contemplating my Thanksgiving table.  I decided that I wanted to combine cute little appetizer bowls with place cards.

I made appetizer bowls for my Halloween table, and thought they'd be super fun for Thanksgiving too.

How to make Thanksgiving Appetizer Bowls and Place Cards


     Gather Supplies
     This is a very cost effective project so you can spend your money on the good stuff - the FOOD!  


Appetizer Bowls

    
      DIY Instructions

  • Wash glass bowls to remove grease so the vinyl will stick.  
  • Cut vinyl.  If you are applying vinyl to the bottom of the bowls, don't forget the mirror the vinyl before cutting.  I placed black vinyl on the bottom of some of the bowls.  I also used etched vinyl that was placed on the inside rim of the other bowls.

  • I also placed cut leaves on the bottom of some of the bowls too.
